Last night on his radio show, Michael Savage was blasting the latest anti-2nd Amendment fiascos being perpetrated by the administration of the “communist tyrant” Barack Obama. This time, it’s the ATF deliberately getting guns in the hands of “low-level” Mexican drug cartel gangsters, as part of operation “Fast and Furious.” Only government bureaucrats could be this incompetent — and crazy.
And now there are charges by two congressional leaders, long-time hack Charles Grassley and Darrell Issa, the “richest member of Congress,” that the situation is being covered up by the DOJ including its head honcho, Eric Holster. Michael Savage seems to think (and he may very well be correct) that it is part of an overall effort by the “communist tyrant” in the White House and his fellow totalitarians to disarm the entire population, by using this gun operation and subsequent violence and deaths (caused, as usual, by government nincompoops) as an example why no one should have guns (except for incompetent government nincompoops).
According to FoxNews:
The operation began in the fall of 2009 as an effort to trace and stop the trafficking of illegal guns on the Southwest border, but instead allowed thousands of guns to get into the hands of Mexican cartel members.The two say they learned about the program after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in December 2010. At the crime scene were two guns linked to the “Fast and Furious” operation.
At an Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing last month, three federal firearms investigators testified that they wanted to “intervene and interdict” loads of guns, but were repeatedly ordered to step aside to allow suspected smugglers to carry the weapons over the border.
Issa and Grassley have urged Holder to cooperate and turn over subpoenaed records that would reveal the scope of the government coverup.
The alleged coverup involves three law enforcement agencies: the ATF, FBI and the DEA, or Drug Enforcement Administration.

The real solutions to these problems that only government bureaucrats could cause:
- End the War on Drugs
- End the War on Self-Defense
- End the War on Freedom
- Decentralize and Give Independence and Sovereignty Back to the States
One very constructive and helpful idea is to allow only the citizenry (or civilians) to be armed, and mandate that all agents of government be disarmed. That way, we would all be safer.
